It's one way to do it.  For the gory details:

Subject: lazy sessions and .htaccess

I am using lazy sessions for my site, and as such have a section like this:
 <Location />
  AuthType shibboleth
  ShibRequireSession Off
  Require shibboleth
 This works as expected, but I would like to further configure a subdirectory with a .htaccess file (which, as the documentation states, impossible in combination with the above <Location> block.
 My workaround was to place the directives in a <Directory> block, configuring the webroot.
 This *does* work, but I'm wondering if it is the best way to accomplish what I want (to use .htaccess files).
 I have httpd 2.4.6 and shibd 2.6.1
 Any pointers here would be appreciated!
